Numb and confused
      06/10/13 03:58 PM

Hi everyone. I started out this year with a determination to get into a healthier lifestyle. So as of January 2nd, I started going to the gym 5 days a week, up until the beginning of April. I then started feeling really tired, and I thought it was due to work. So I ended up stopping. But after a couple of weeks, I was just feeling listless and drained, and I didn't know what to do. My partner recommended going to the Dr to perform a physical, and the Dr might be able to help guide me in what's going on.

I was just diagnosed last week Thursday as being HIV positive. I'm feeling extremely numb. When the Dr told me, I think everything around me went blank. Even though it's been a few days, I still feel numb. I'm just experiencing all of these emotions at once as well: guilt, anger, frustration, fear. The Dr did give me some antibiotics to start treatment, and I've been feeling better, but I still feel confused and dazed. I'm trying to act normal at work, but my emotions were starting to show, and I don't want to tell anyone there about this. I just wish I had a group to chat with that I can tell this too and perhaps try to help build back some confidence and encouragement to life. I have my partner, and he's my greatest strength right now, but I need others.

Thanks for reading this.
